4th Reading

4th ELA


    Welcome to 4th grade ELA!


    We have several assignments that are on-going and will not be recorded in the assignments tab.  These include:

    Novel Reading - We will start the year out with The Secret Garden by Francis Hodgson Burnett.  We will read together in class along with reading at home.

    With each novel students will journal about their reading every week.  Journal entries will focus on significant events that occured in their reading section by quoting the story directly.  Students will reflect on why the events are significant framing their thoughts with the Literary Elements being studied this year.  Journals will be collected every Tuesday.  


     Latin - Student this year will create an Interactive Notebook to begin acquiring Latin stems.  Each week students will create a new entry in their notebook focused on one Latin stem.  This study will add not only to thier vocabulary but will also increase their knowledge of and use of dictionaries.  Quizzes will be given at the end of each quarter.  Quizzes will be cummulative.
